Die Goldberg Variationen, das wohl bekannteste Werk für Tasteninstrumente von Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), stellen einen Höhepunkt barocker Variationskunst dar. Über eine kunstvoll verzierte barocke Arie entfaltet Bach ein Wunderwerk von 30 Variationen - heitere und besinnliche, kantable und fugierte, tänzerische sowie virtuose. Jetzt erscheint dieses Werk in einer neuen, einzigartigen Fassung: Der Komponist Heribert Breuer hat eine kammermusikalische Bearbeitung für Septett geschaffen.

Known throughout country music as "the Guitar Man," singer/songwriter Jerry Reed gained recognition not only for a successful solo career but also as an actor and ace session player. Jerry Reed Hubbard was born in Atlanta, GA, on March 20, 1937; after picking up the guitar as a child, he was signed by publisher and producer Bill Lowery to cut his first record, "If the Good Lord's Willing and the Creeks Don't Rise," at the age of 18. He continued releasing both country and rockabilly singles to little notice until rocker Gene Vincent covered his "Crazy Legs" in 1958.

With his latest project 'Bughouse' Dutch based saxophonist Benjamin Herman has finally found the perfect musicians to realize a long-cherished dream of forming a punk jazz quartet. Although Benjamin is a now a seasoned jazzhead with well-earned credentials he was very much influenced by the DIY mentality that was part of the punk ethics in the late seventies. "I started off playing drums when I was nine years old. Everyone in the neighbourhood was into music and everyone was in a band. All these bands made their own records took care of their own artwork and arranged their own gigs. I always thought that was really cool. Later on in life that helped motivate me to have a life in music on my own terms."

In the past 12 years Peter Gall made a name for himself as masterful meter and composer in various bands, for instance Subtone (including Florian Hoefner, Magnus Schriefl and Matthias Pichler) or with Roberto Di Gioia’s Web Web (including Tony Lakatos). Gall’s drumming can be heard on roughly 30 albums to date, among them his brother Chris’ trio Blume (with Schriefl, Wanja Slavin, Bernhard Meyer), the Rainer Böhm Quartet, Torsten Goods and Enik; furthermore he was engaged by luminaries like Kurt Rosenwinkel or Thomas Quasthoff, only to name a few. Now he presents his first own production, Paradox Dreambox. It doesn’t spring exuberant drumming on the listener, but rather allures with melodious lines and multilayered arrangements, nuanced band interactions and latent energy even in quieter passages.

Lorenzo Naccarato is back, with his trio. His second opus, "Nova Rupta", is worthy of the promises that had been raised by the first, in 2016. Better, the whole has matured. In cohesion. Without giving up an iota of what was already his power of seduction. Namely, it immediately devastates the listener. Take him on a dreamlike journey. An enchanted world - and enchanting. A music in movement. Kinetic, or kinematic.

The Blues is and always has been a source of inspiration for Samuel Blaser. Touched by the expressiveness of this style, the multi-faceted virtuoso trombonist uses all the resources of today’s jazz and yesterday’s to make its heritage bear fruit in a contemporary vision. Early in the Mornin’, produced by Robert Sadin, aims to celebrate the universality of the Blues and takes its place as a unique album midway between jazz and modern urban music. On this album, Samuel Blaser reinterprets the tunes that lie at the origin of the Blues, derived from work songs, country music or English and Irish folk music.

Au beau milieu d’une nuit de juin 2016, je me réveille avec un flash lumineux et sonore, je viens de rêver de théorie musicale (fait rare !) et la phrase suivante tourne dans ma tête : « Chaque intervalle musical connaît son apogée à différents moments de l’histoire du langage tonal occidental.»

"If now the intelligent phenomenon Thundercat alias Stephen Bruner came from a small Swedish town instead of Los Angeles, he would be called Cassius Lambert alias Pelle Lindsjö. Cassius Lambert is bassist like Thundercat. The musical starting point is hip hop, funk and fusion jazz with many freedoms. The similarities are many. However, the most striking similarity is the ability to keep an eye on some complicated events where recognisability is allowed to prevail with the unknown. Cassius Lambert holds many balls in the air and also throws the juggler up into the air. It sounds wild in writing. It's also when listening."
